New assisted living community coming to Boyle County

A new senior assisted living and memory care community is being planned for Boyle County.

The new facility will be built on 6.3 acres at the intersection of Davco Drive and U.S. 127 South, according to a news release from DMK Development Group out of Louisville and Trilogy Management Services.

It will feature 56 assisted living and 25 memory care apartments, made up of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites. The assisted living community will also include a full-service bistro, multiple dining areas with an on-site chef, an activity room, a beauty and barber salon, library and a fitness center.

Landscaped courtyards, gardens and a putting green are also part of the project, according to the release.

“We identified a growing need in Danville for a senior community that will provide quality, hospitality-based senior care without giving up the luxuries of home,” said founder and CEO of DMK Development Group David Kitchen. “The innovative design and hospitality-oriented care of our communities give aging Americans what they want today — more services, amenities and the attention they deserve. Our partnership with an award winning, best-in-class manager like Trilogy Management Services is an exciting collaboration towards continuing their mission to transform the senior care industry,” Kitchen said.

According to Randall Bufford, president and CEO of Trilogy Management Services, “At Trilogy, we believe that our communities should be places where family comes to live … We combine beautiful surroundings and out-of-this-world amenities with skilled, caring employees to create communities that are so much more than the sum of their parts.”

Construction for the facility could begin this summer, with completion possible in the summer of 2020.

The project is expected to be a $14 million investment, according to the release, and will employ more than 200 construction workers. When completed, the facility will employ between 60 and 70 people.

Trilogy Health Services also manages The Willows at Harrodsburg, which opened its new facility about one year ago in what was once Eddie Montgomery’s Steakhouse.
